The sacrifice we made today by boycotting Anambra gubernatorial election and sit at home in the other Igbo states, has shown the solidarity and respect the people has for the leadership of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu lead IPOB.

This is how wikipedia defines what we just did today.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia on Election boycott:

An election boycott is the boycotting of an election by a group of voters, each of whom abstains from voting.

Boycotting may be used as a form of political protest where voters feel that electoral fraud is likely, or that the electoral system is biased against its candidates, that the polity organizing the election lacks legitimacy, or that the candidates running are very unpopular.

In jurisdictions with compulsory voting, a boycott may amount to an act of civil disobedience; alternatively, supporters of the boycott may be able to cast blank votes or vote for “none of the above”.

Boycotting voters may belong to a particular regional or ethnic group. A particular political party or candidate may refuse to run in the election and urges its supporters to boycott the vote.

In the case of a referendum, a boycott may be used as a voting tactic by opponents of the proposition.

In general elections, individuals and parties will often boycott in order to protest the ruling party’s policies with the hope that when voters do not show up the elections will be deemed illegitimate by outside observers.

This tactic, however, can prove disastrous for the boycotting parties. Lack of participation rarely nullifies election results and the distorted voting is likely to further detach boycotting groups from the organs of power, leaving them susceptible to political irrelevance.

From the point raised above, boycotting the election doesn’t mean people won’t vote, but it there will be a low turnout. This is a legal civil disobedient or a form of protest that has great consequences.

Though this boycott will not stop the emergency of a winner but it will bring to the fore burner that those who boycotted the election, can remove the winner from the position won.

In other words, the boycott of Anambra election has shown our commitment to restore Biafra in coming years and para-venture a referendum is conducted today, Biafra will surely emerge.

It has also shown our level of distrust with the Nigerian government and her political vultures who after all promises, embezzle and sell our freedom through corruption, whamtom mismanagement of natural and human resources and instilling inequality in the society.
